In all the years I have sailed here in Scotland, there has never been a reported incident of piracy. There is the occasional theft, but none of those horrors. We have the Royal Navy too, if there ever was. The Irish, Welsh and English won't do it either, Norwegians won't, Danes won't, Germans won't.
You can arrive armed if you wish, but you will have to surrender the firearm when you arrive. You will get it back when you leave.
The weather is colder here, but you won't need an A/C. We will make you welcome too. It is probably only a bit further than Venezuela, and you can expect westerlies most of the way.
Pirates are the scum of the earth. A man is dead and only being armed would have defended him. Pirates are cowards. If you are armed, they will not be so courageous. They are savages. We are boat owners. Forget Venezuela. Avoid it.
